Awhile back, perhaps last summer, Zuhn made a very good point over on her blog. She'd come to a point in her blogging life at which she felt compelled to start writing about subjects she didn't feel her regular readers could handle. Not that they couldn't *handle* these things exactly... but things she feared would put her regulars off a little. Personal stuff, sexual stuff, stuff she hadn't been writing about on her blog before.

Now I find myself in that exact position. I have been blogging for two years now and until this point I have never shared any details about my sex life. I've talked about my girlfriends, my break-ups, I've written very vaguely about certain sexual exploits, but I've always pretended to be a lady who doesn't tell. Well that's just ridiculous because I love to tell. I've just been refraining for *your* sake, dear reader. I was afraid I would freak you out. See how I take care of you?

But the truth is that I love sex and really love thinking and talking and writing about it. I think we'd all be a lot happier and healthier (sexually and otherwise) if we were free to share some of the more intimate details of things. And so I started another blog. I decided I'd introduce it here and let *you* decide if you want to go there.

It's not a porn blog and it's not particularly sexy so far. It's just me, writing about my own sexual exploration and the way my sexuality overlaps with politics and feminism and genderism and all sorts of weird stuff. In fact, there's only two posts so far, so it's a blog in its infancy. I invite you to come check it out, if you can stand to read intimate details about me, and if you get inspired I'd love it if you'd post comments about your own experiences.

So here it is, Swell. Come on over! I'd love to see you all there.

You don't need to refrain for my sake. I've always felt that people are way too uptight about sex and that if people would actually talk about it we might be able to lift the puritanicle veil that that is stranling us in the country.

you guys are cool, thanks for your encouragement. i have straight (as in hetero and also as in square) friends who read this blog, including an old professor who links to it on his HUGELY popular portland blog, so i felt a little shy to suddenly start talking about my sex life without at least some warning. now you have to actually choose to go to the other site to read the sex stuff, which i'm hoping you'll all choose to do. it's pretty awesome over there.
